Mayhem Miller Retires From Mixed Martial Arts Following Latest Loss | UFC NEWS

It was no secret that Jason “Mayhem” Miller was in desperate need of a win Saturday night at UFC 146. Unfortunately, that win did not come and Mayhem’s current UFC losing stint grew to two straight (0-3 overall). The loss however was the beginning of a somewhat odd night for Miller, following the fight, in the post fight press conference; Dana White stated that he had released Miller for reasons not explained. White went on to say that there was, “a backstage incident” and Miller was “DONE.”

The lack luster performance Saturday night had nothing to do with his release White said. White did not go on to say what the incident entailed but Miller spoke on what he believed went on before the fight and what led to his release.
“It was my mask [from my walkout],” said Miller in speaking with “The MMA Hour’s” Ariel Helwani.”Burt [Watson] suddenly started yelling about my mask. I had a gas mask for the troops underneath my paper bag, and Burt started telling me right as I’m walking out for the fight. I’m trying to get focused instead of arguing about a paper bag. Maybe it was my fault. I thought we had an understanding once I start walking out to the cage and then now I’m working, but obviously we’re not on a playing field of mutual respect.”

“I wish I would have heard about it before so it would be easier to deal with. But here I am walking to the cage, and suddenly I started getting yelled at. I’m like ‘what, I’m trying to focus here.’ Whatever. Things don’t always go the way you want. That’s life and you have to deal with it.”

However the wheels continued to turn following this weekend’s event and Miller went on to tell Helwani that he indeed was retiring from MMA. Prior to Miller’s fight with Dolloway this weekend, Miller said he would retire from the sport if he could not perform with the best.

“Yeah, I said I would [retire] and so I am. I didn’t get the job done and that’s what I’m saying. I’m done for right now. Who knows what the future holds but at the same time, what’s the point?”

When asked how he would handle or deal with his new found freedom, Miller said he felt liberated and ok. Miller has always been controversial but this may come as a shock to some due to the fact that he was involuntarily released.

“I feel free in a weird way. Like in the strangest way, I feel free and I know that sounds strange when I’ve devoted my entire life to fighting, but I feel like my life is unlocked for a whole other set of adventures. I don’t feel the need to super-impress one person in particular, make them happy. I can focus on making myself happy and I don’t have the pressures of a commissioner chasing me around with a piss cup or the pressures of everyone verbally abusing me for my missteps via social media. I feel like a weight is lifted.”

    blah blah blah.. tryin to focus?? you call dancing with a pink boa and pink radio focusing..lmao.. ur a joke

  2. MrGrooveSSC says:

    Atleast he knows when to hang it up

  3. Jason says:

    Miller is a great guy I don’t know what has happened to him lately but he will be back I did not like his fight Sat. Holloway should change his name to Hugaway because all he did was tried to hug Miller the entire time.

  4. Jeremy says:

    Mayhem I can’t believe ur letting white do this, I looked up to u…u were a role model to me, but I guess if u retire u will come back an be a monster, much love

    • &; says:

      I think he might have to consider a return to WW. He claims he was too small there but he has to do something. Although his cardio was suspect at MW so it probably wouldn’t hold up at WW anymore either. The shittiest part of it is that he was dominating that fight on the feet, but, maybe because of the knee, he just couldn’t get back to his feet once he got taken down.

  5. DMAC says:

    Idk how mayhem went this long with that striking and cardio, I honestly don’t ever remembering him perform this way. It’s almost like two different people.

    Good thing about Miller he’s super intelligent so sky’s the limit with him. Good luck in the future Mayhem!

  6. monkey juice says:

    He’s a sideshow. Anyone who likes miller probably likes pro-wrestling too. Fuck off and learn some pro wrestling and take your fans with you. fuckin sideshow miller…

  7. monkey juice says:

    Miller is a sideshow. Go learn some wrasling Miller and see if someone will hire you. Oh and take your gay fans with you…miller sucks balls.

    • Sam Eames says:

      Idiotic double post and you are an idiot. I don’t even like Miller.

    • Austin says:

      Dude learn how to spell before you say something stupid like this, he is awesome your just jealous that your not as big as him get in the cage and fight before you run your fat mouth! Monkeys rule!!

    • joe says:

      wow, what a homophobe. Obviously a closet homosexual that isn’t comfortable with his own sexuality.

  8. Miller is a great TV/Radio personality, but has no business in the cage, he’s a clown and I’m glad he got cut. I wish him the best in media.

  9. David says:

    The guy is a joke look at his last two fights. He made him self look like a dick to with all the showboating he did then lost.

    • bjjJake says:

      u go fight him him then, tired of people talking shit if u havent done it urself then who the fuck are u to judge…and i dont care for Miller but the fact is at least he made it to more than one big show Org….

  10. dave says:

    least he gave it a shot, unlike alot of people in this world and the ones knocking on him. Lets see you get in the octagon!!!

  11. Miller was a great fighter, but now… better luck in MTV!!!

  12. Flex juice monkey says:

    Who cares if he fought for a living. You ask him to go work a 9-5 job. He can’t do what normal people do. He sleeps all day, works out for 2 hours, goes on a radio show once a week and collect sponsor $$ then fights like a bitch for 15 minutes. Fuck him.

    • ubunchofags says:

      u r just jealous and wish u wouldn’t be stuck in your crappy ass job with a gag boss like your faggit ass taking it from behind, and u don’t even have the balls to step up into an amateur cage, so don’t criticize and get back to licking balls for minimum wage u huge vagina! all u do is bitch!

  13. Jason says:

    Miller would make you look like bitches.

  14. Joe Gull says:

    I ended up fast forwarding through most of that match. It was quite obvious that for the 4 minutes and 15 seconds that Dolloway wasn’t dry humping Mayhem, Mayhem was beating the shit out of him. I lost count of the number of times Mayhem landed good, clean hits and rocked CB then closed for the kill and CB would grab him and dry hump him for the rest of the round. I think Dana should have fired Dolloway too for being a useless ****.

  17. brent york says:

    i dont blame him at all for his decisions. maybe its just time for a change. it would be cool to see him come back out of retirement later and dominate. good luck milller

  19. kjoe says:

    Think Dana wanted him out anyways. Had him face opponents with strong wrestling when he just wants to bang.

  20. Flex juice monkey says:

    Yeah amature cage wrestling is where men are made bitch. That’s for losers that can’t hold down a real job and take money from their moms to chase their “dream”. Fuckin joke. It’s easy to go hit bags for 2 hours at 1:00 in the afternoon you ****. I bet your lazy ass couldn’t wake up at 6:00 and work a real job 40 hours a week so get mom and dad to support your lazy ass. That’s a fuckin ***** if I ever saw one. Fuck you.

    • D-yan says:

      allot of people work 40 hours dude chill the fuck out.

    • TRUDEAU1311 says:

      Whats a fudge packer like you looking at ***** for. miller is a great fighter i agree it was time his antics are fucking hilarious but he’s not the fighter he use to be. i can see why you have to comment every ten minutes though the juice will do that amateur cage fighting is gay just like all the pro fighters who came from it you dumb pole smoker. saturdays fight was gay dollaway sucks if he was so good he would of finished the fight on the ground or at least put attempt on it he lay and prayed cause he could stand and bang prime example of why ufc should bring cards back from pride

  21. MMACRAVER says:

    Miller can barely burp out a complete fucking sentence that makes sense in an interview.

    How can we expect him to be an intelligent fighter?

  22. monkey juice says:

    They gave miller a tomato can. The tomato can won, dipshit.

  23. Dru says:

    They should have let him fight diaz but d.white is a fucking idiot. Mayhem Miller is one of the best in the weight class. SMH

    • Nuitari X says:

      LMAO, sorry man but that’s the dumbest fucking comment I’ve ever read on this site. Miller sucks balls, Diaz would rip his ass to pieces and Dana White is the shit fool.

  24. Michael hamlin says:

    Join the circus if you want to be clown miller!!!

  25. Josh Colson says:

    An unintelligent fighter? That’s cool…I guess. 34 victories in MMA… 9 losses… better than most of the fighters in ufc who are smoking pot, using roids, faking low T to get a strength edge. Dana didn’t like that Mayhem not a robot. And nobody’s mentioned those scorecards: 29-28,29-28, 30-26? How do you come up with 26? Mayhem rocked CB’s brain at least 3 times… I remember when a knockdown counted, I guess it doesn’t anymore. Mayhem had the arm in guillotine in the second round locked and his knee wasn’t there. The “knockdown” Dollaway got in the second was Jason throwing a left hook and his knee buckling. Dollaway layed on Jason, didn’t even try to finish the fight, and was the one whose face was marked up. I’m not saying that I could give Mayhem the decision, but when you can’t finish a one-legged man, you don’t deserve credit from other fighters or the man who you work for. And to the guy who said that Nick Diaz would take Mayhem apart; why wouldn’t he get his meeley-mouthed, pot head ass in the cage with him? Mayhem offered to cut as low as 178 and Nick cried about being a welterweight when he’s fought other guys up to 183? BTW, your gay jokes need to stop. You’re not funny and you obviously only watch ufc and don’t know much about mma outide of it. 34-9… that record speaks for itself. There aren’t many guys who make it to 20 wins, but he must be terrible because he doesn’t act like a dick to everybody and thinks what he does should be fun. And God forbid that he wants to entertain his fans along the way.
